Gemstone Mine - The State of Blue Counterspells -- Part Two

It's time to dig deep again as this week we take a look at all of the best counterspells that Blue has to offer, starting from the free all the way up to spells at six or even seven mana! "The best" counterspell isn't always the best choice for your deck, and sometimes a card which other players might rate very lowly is *perfect* for what your deck wants to do!
